My daughter Julianna was given her first bike by Save-the-kid-fund back in June of 2015, and she was just over 3 years old. Never being able to go to a department store and just buy a bike, it was so amazing to see her smile!! Saftey and comfort on a bike with the ability to use it... priceless!!!
Frank Matovack contacted me once again in the fall of 2018, reaching out to me with the certainty that Julianna had outgrown her previous bike, and that he would love to have another made for her..
I was speechless, assuming that most of these organizations gifts are a one time thing..?
I explained to Frank that Julianna recently had growing rods surgically placed, and her needs for a bike had changed. He couldn’t have been more understanding and eager to accommodate to her new situation.
Needless to say... Jules received her 2nd bike today!!!!!!!!
Save-the-kid-fund does such amazing things for children with special needs of all kinds, and brings happiness to EVERYONE involved.
I not only witnessed my 6 year old daughter ride a bike for the first time in over a year, but I saw a room full of adults come together to change a life!
Thank you so much to all that made this possible - Heather L
We can’t thank Frank from Save The Kid Fund enough! Our daughter Amber suffered a stroke in March of 2018 from an previously-unknown GBM tumor that had been growing. After recovering in the hospital for 50 days, she got to go home but still had to recover from the stroke that had severely impaired her left side. She started going to outpatient physical therapy and our physical therapist got us in contact with Frank from Save The Kid Fund. While Amber waited for her new bike (which was on back-order), Frank came by with a temporary bike for her to ride for the summertime, which was so thoughtful! Well, last week, Amber just received her new bike and she absolutely loves it! Amber has gotten so much stronger and will keep getting stronger, in part from riding her bike. What an absolutely AMAZING organization! We honestly cannot thank you enough!!! - Caron S
